“WE ARE MEZCAL PEOPLE”
Gente de Mezcal (‘Mezcal People’) is a small, independent, Mezcal-producing company founded in 2015 by Hardey Martínez and Juan Carlos Muñoz Flores. The founders are passionate about small-batch production, local sustainability, the promotion of Mexican Mezcal culture and the work of the Maestro Mezcaleros at the heart of it. Since 2018, they have been exporting their award-winning Mezcals to the UK via sailboat, all part and parcel of their business philosophy.
Made from 100% Tepeztate agave in the Oaxaca region of Mexico. Following traditional production methods and ancestral knowledge from the Oaxaca communities, the piñas (or hearts of the agave plant) are baked in the ground and then crushed with a stone mill before being fermented naturally.
Tepeztate is a Gold medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019.
On the nose this is light, floral, perfumed but the flavours are lively and flirt between a sweet refreshing thyme joy and a soft bitterness. Pepper is left to crackle in a slightly hoppy aftermath. Newly dried bird’s beak chillies carry strength throughout this Tepeztate.
